The Desirable Body: Cultural Fetishism and the Erotics of Consumption
Aims to lay a foundation for cultural and gender studies of the body, by explicating the links, both historical and philosophical, between commodity culture and cultural fetishism. This book details the structures of consumerism and desire that, since around 1850, have brought about the fetishization and spectacularization of the female body.
